Politics / History

In choosing to study this Politics and History Degree at Aberystwyth University you will explore the fundamental political concepts which shape our daily life: justice, freedom, power, and citizenship. You will consider how factors such as ethnicity, gender, and ecology reflect and produce changes in political thought and how all these ideas are translated into practice. This Politics and History degree is therefore not only about politicians and governments, but about all the groups and organisations which influence politics - national and multinational companies, trade unions, and civil society groups - so that you will emerge from your degree in Politics and History equipped for political engagement in many contexts. You will be studying in the longest-established Politics department in the UK, and taught by high quality, enthusiastic staff, and upon successful graduation you'll possess the essential skills and capabilities demanded for employability.
